 Post subject: Farrow and Ball Wallpapering Job
PostPosted: Sat Apr 20, 2019 10:06 pm 
Lovely job all finished and paid.
Filled the walls under dado rail and sanded all walls down.
I applied a coat of size to walls beneath dado rail.
Then I wallpapered the walls with £110.00 per roll Farrow and Ball Wallpaper.

 Post subject: VW POLO '06 1.2 LITRE - Humming noise from engine! **VIDEO**
PostPosted: Sat Apr 20, 2019 6:56 pm 
Hi Everyone! Hope someone on here can help....

I've had this high pitch humming/whistling noise coming from my engine. It happens when I accelerate at a certain point usually heard in the first 3 gears. (noise still is heard when pressing the clutch in) it is also heavily noticeable after switching off the engine as seen in the video.

I hope someone knows the issue, sometimes it's barely noticeable, sometimes louder and sometimes does happen ...

 Post subject: Flashing on new conservatory roof
PostPosted: Sat Apr 20, 2019 5:45 pm 
Hi, I just had a new glass roof installed on my conservatory and would like some advice / opinions on the flashing. I'm no expert, but to me it doesn't look right. There are gaps where the lead goes over the plastic, it comes further onto the glass than I would expect it to, and it just looks sloppy. Does it need to come that far down onto the glass? My main concern is the ...

 Post subject: Will this cap the right part for the job?
PostPosted: Sat Apr 20, 2019 4:40 pm 
This may be a very easy question for someone but i don't want to purchase the wrong part for the second time. I'm stuggling to cap off a trap from underneath my bath. Is the part in the link right for the job? Looks good, just want a expert to say yes. Thanks

 Post subject: Gap between render & brickwork
PostPosted: Sat Apr 20, 2019 3:58 pm 
Hi all,

I have a gap between render and brickwork (approx 17.5mm at widest point) - see photo. I'm wondering if this should be filled with mortar or whether it's better to use something more flexible?

Any thoughts? Thanks

 Post subject: Delay light Switch in Garage by the sea
PostPosted: Sat Apr 20, 2019 11:14 am 
I put one of these push pneumatic type delay switches in a garage for an outside light, so as you left the garage you had light for a short while
But two now have broken, you can nolonger push the button in - both did the same thing after about a year or so

The switch is inside a large backdoor on the garage - not sealed but does not let any water in
and ...

 Post subject: Move Plant?
PostPosted: Sat Apr 20, 2019 10:57 am 
OK, this has gotten far too big for the position it's in - can I move it, and if so, how to go about it?

There's another smaller one that I don't really want to move, but is there any way to stop it growing any more?Image

 Post subject: leaking internal stopcock
PostPosted: Fri Apr 19, 2019 7:20 pm 
I have a plumber booked for Sunday morning to look at a leaking internal stopcock. There is no stopcock outside my property, and I am assuming there is one at the other end of my terrace. I am wanting to be prewarned about the issue this may cause the plumber if the internal stopcock needs to be disassembled. Should I try and find out if there is an external stopcock somewhere on the terrace before ...
